Lucy Hannah (16 July 1875 – 21 March 1993) was an American supercentenarian who is validated as the fourth-oldest person ever, supposedly one of only nine people to reach 117, and the oldest African-American person ever.

Before her death, Hannah claimed to be 118, but investigation by the Social Security Administration's "Kestenbaum" study in 2003 determined that her age at death was actually 117 years, 248 days.
